Hi, I am a forest ecologist. I have spent most of my research time up to now working on tree architecture, how the environment shapes it and how it relates to tree functioning. Another important aspect of my work concerns applied research on vegetation biomass distribution measurement, which allows to better assess fire hazards, carbon sequestration and habitats of biodiversity. My methods consist in using LiDAR data to characterize forests in three dimensions at different spatial scales. Working with huge dataset is what I do… far from being a theoretician, I still like hanging around with them. The INTP is the place where I currently live and work. The mountains around are the place where I play.
